Tuleje e Mmaleje di Roseto Valfortore

Photo gallery


You have to reach the top of the amphitheater of Vico Sottosanti to admire these two masterpieces of the art of the Rosetta stonemasons.

The two nobles depicted have a name according to tradition: it would be Tuleje and Mmalaje. Although it is not really known who is represented in the two stone slabs. The first slab depicts a woman with long hair richly dressed, supine on the mortal eyelash; the second instead a man, whose clothes and features make one think of a Saracen soldier, has one hand on the left cheek and the other lying on the belly, while the left leg is curiously bent under the right leg, in a pose such as not to suggest that the body was composed for eternal rest. On this last slab is also visible an engraving in the Franco-Angioino style.
